Re: install Devil 1/2 system w/o PCIII or not?

I just bought a Devil SB2 1/2 system hi mount for my 03 954. I am planning on getting the PCIII but it will probably be another month or so before I can spend the cash on that.

My newbie question is: can I go ahead and install my Devil system now with the stock ECU or should I wait until I have my PCIII.

I am dieing to hear this bike with the Devil system and am having a hard time waiting.

Go for it! *You can wait awhile before your PCIII purchase, you'll be fine. *Alot of folks have had their Devils on for along time before finally purchasing the PCIII.

BTW, it'll sound pretty cool - don't worry about that!

I am going straight home after work and taking a sawzall to my brand new Honda!

Re: install Devil 1/2 system w/o PCIII or not?

You should be hearing sweet music later on tonight!

I purchased the 3/4 Devil so I wouldn't have to bother with the cutting.

Reminds me of when I installed my spool kit into the swingarm...'Dave what are you going to do tonight?' *'Well, I'm going to go home to drill 2 holes into my $8000.00 sportbike's perfectly good swingarm.' *

I measured 10,000 times, drilled once with hands shaking!

Good Luck, should be pretty simple! Enjoy

Re: install Devil 1/2 system w/o PCIII or not?

Yeah, cutting those pipes is going to be a one-way leap of faith ... but I have been mentally preparing myself for it for a few days now.

I have already pledged to not start drinking until after I have put the sawzall away.

Thanks for your help. By tonight my neighbors should REALLY hate my bike.

Re: install Devil 1/2 system w/o PCIII or not?

I have the sb2 3/4 on my 929 and i love it more everytime i ride. *Im sure it'll be fine without the pcIII, but when you do get one installed, you'll regret not having it sooner. *The mpg goes up and the power delivery is smooth as silk. After that do the pair valve mod.

Re: install Devil 1/2 system w/o PCIII or not?

Hi !

This might be a stupid question, but i wonder what system requiers to cut of the stock system? And why would you want to do that??
I can not think of one good reason to cut my exhaust. I'd rather save up and go for a full system, or buy a bolt on.. I read the bolt-on rewiev in mcnews.com.au and the 1/2 system yoshimura is no better than the bolt-on's when it comes to HP without a PC.

Just my 2 cents

Re: install Devil 1/2 system w/o PCIII or not?

In hindsight it probably would have been worth the extra 150 or so to get the 3/4 system from Devil rather than the 1/2 system that I got (that requires cutting). Coulda ... shoulda ... woulda, I guess.

Anyway the pipe is on and looks and sounds great. I had it on in under an hour - fit and finish was very good.

One thing - it interferes with the turn signals on my Competition Werks fender eliminator kit. I will have to modify the bracket to make them fit - no big deal.

I had my 3/4 Devil for about a year before I got a PCIII. When I finally did get one, man I could tell the difference.
